Bianca Cheah, running

You know the feeling: you wake up after a great night sleep, swing your legs over the bed, stand up and – BOOM! – your body reminds you that you had a fantastic workout yesterday as you limp to the bathroom.

Muscle soreness is a sign you’ve worked hard (in fact, some people even love the feeling for that reason) but it doesn’t have to be a part and parcel with fit living.

These three tricks will help ease aching muscles after you exercise to get you recovering faster so you can workout harder next time…
